CEMEX USA has been recognised as 2020 US EPA ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence, marking the second consecutive year the company has been honoured for its energy management and longstanding commitment to sustainability.
The new 2020 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year Award is the latest honour by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the US Department of Energy that recognises CEMEX USA’s ongoing and active participation in the ENERGY STAR programme. Last year, CEMEX USA was named 2019 EPA ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year for Energy Management with two CEMEX USA cement plants earning ENERGY STAR Certification. Since 2007, CEMEX USA operations have earned more than 50 ENERGY STAR certifications.
“Sustainability is embedded in our day-to-day operations at CEMEX and is an integral part of our core business strategy,” said CEMEX USA President, Jaime Muguiro. “Energy conservation is part of our vision as we are building a better future and believe it’s our responsibility to vigorously practice energy management through ongoing initiatives and the use of alternative fuels. We’re proud to be recognised again for our efforts as EPA ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year and applaud our operations for consistently working to make a difference.”
ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award is the highest honour among ENERGY STAR awards. EPA presents the Sustained Excellence Award to partners that have already received ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year recognition for a minimum of two consecutive years and have gone above and beyond the criteria needed to qualify for recognition.
“I salute the 2020 ENERGY STAR award winners,” said Anne Idsal, EPA Principal Deputy Assistant Administrator for Air and Radiation. “These leaders demonstrate how energy efficiency drives economic competitiveness in tandem with environmental protection.”
